Apparently there's something big brewing over in Taiwan as news of the super-sized handset going by the moniker HTC One Max continues to grow on the web.
After the success of the HTC One the Taiwanese firm is probably feeling pretty bullish about its chances going forward and it's no surprise that rumours have begun to crop up suggesting it's looking at the phablet device codenamed T6.
There's an outside chance the One Max could turn up with KitKat, but it seems unlikely as Google is tipped to announce the latest Android update just a few days before HTC makes its rumoured announcement.
HTC One Max processor
As well having a huge display the HTC One Max is expected to pack some serious power under its metal chassis, with reports of a 2.3GHz quad-core processor getting our attention.
Apparently the One Max will use the same Snapdragon 800 chip you'll find in the Galaxy Note 3 and Xperia Z Ultra, plus there will be 2GB of RAM to back it up.
HTC One Max design
Usually with key phone launches a whole platter of images claiming to depict the handset in question are leaked online, although when it comes to the
The first glimpse we got of the HTC One Max was in the form of a blueprint, which from the rear appears to be identical to the handset it's based on.
On the front only minor cosmetic changes show up, with additional width to accommodate the larger display and a shift of the sensors at the top of the device from the left to right.
An image which appeared on Chinese site ePrice claimed to show the HTC One Max lined up next to the One and the One Mini - and on the rear of the One Max there seems to be what looks like a fingerprint scanner.
This particular model is a supposed dual-SIM variant of the One Max which will likely land in Asian markets.
So we can be pretty such that if the HTC One Max does exist it will simply look like a stretched HTC One, but the fingerprint conundrum just won't go away. Yet another leaked image made its way onto the web, complete with that black square on the back of the device.
We have apparently seen the complete package if the following image is to be believed. Apparently that's the HTC One Max on the left alongside the Galaxy Note 3 and Galaxy Note 2.
Roubnding off the HTC One Max image leak buffet is this treat from Chinese site Tenaa, and yes once again the much talked about fingerprint scanner also appears to be present here. Is HTC really going for it?
HTC One Max specs
Apparently the One Max will also feature 16GB of internal storage, 2.1MP front camera, UltraPixel rear camera 4G connectivity and a sizable 3300mAh battery.
Leaked screenshots claiming to be taken from the One Max reveal that it could offer HDR video recording and various camera modes such as "beauty mode", blemish correction tools and panorama.
